Groin injury, turnovers haunt Cavs' Mitchell in loss to Knicks

NEW YORK -- Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell was unsure about his status moving forward after his groin tightened up on the final play of Cleveland's 105-103 loss to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.

"It felt the same as before," said Mitchell, who had missed the prior three games with groin tightness. "I don't know what comes next."

Mitchell had attempted to drive into the paint and tie the game for the Cavaliers, but his shot was blocked by Knicks center Isaiah Hartenstein for the second time in the game's final minute. Then, after grabbing the rebound and kicking it out to forward Evan Mobley -- who missed another potential game-tying shot as New York claimed the victory -- Mitchell stayed down on the court for an extended period. He later said he not only was dealing with groin tightness, but also cramping in both legs, all of which happened on that final drive.
